GUTSY. No video output firing up X.

Bug #144011 reported by Paolo C. on 2007-09-22
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
xserver-xorg-video-ati (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

As reported here:

I cannot use X anylonger after an update I did on the 19th of September.

" I did an update two hours ago, problem is still present.
If i use the radeon driver the lcd monitor reports "no video input" when x is starting up, ìf i use the fglx driver x star in failsafe mode, i can select monitor and video card and then the "no video" problem occours again.
What do you suggest? "

WinXP reports my graphic card as an "ATI RADEON 7200 series"

I tried:
- Booting without the xorg.conf file
- disabling glx in the xorg.conf file

Nothing changed.

Is there any further information that I should provide?

This is a blocking issue for me.

The crash which I can see in your log (in RADEONInitDispBandwidth) is maybe fixed in the -tv5 package ( Please try it.

package downloaded, installed, reboot without a xorg.conf file and everything is working fine.

Problem solved.
